Kanye West's protege Lupe Fiasco 'officially not making music anymore' after being accused of anti-semitism
While Kanye West was making waves for meeting Donald Trump his protege was quitting music.
Lupe Fiasco took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce that he was not releasing anymore music and his upcoming three albums are cancelled.
The statement comes just after the 34-year-old rapper - real name Wasalu Muhammad Jaco - was accused of antisemitism based off the lyrical content from a freestyle he released earlier this week.

In the track titled N.E.R.D., he definitely raised eyebrows as he said: Artists gettin’ robbed for their publishing / By dirty Jewish execs who think that it’s alms from the covenant.'
Shortly after, he got into it with fans on Twitter and defended his lyrics as he wrote: 'I’ve walked inside the ovens of Auschwitz' and 'I've studied the Hebrew bible.'
He also claimed that his song had been taken off SoundCloud for 'hate speech' but it is still up for streaming.

Finally when the Chicago artist had had enough he wrote: 'Yo Lupe fans it's been fun and I hope you've had fun. I'm officially not releasing anymore music. Albums cancelled.'
He later wrote: 'Getting beat up for telling the truth is not how I plan on spending the rest of life.'
His Twitter has since been locked.

No doubt the announcement is a hit to his loyal fanbase as earlier this year he announced that he would be releasing three albums in 2016 but later pushed the release dates back.

This is not the first time Lupe has quit the biz as he said he previously claimed he was retiring in 2012 and also quit Twitter in 2015 but eventually returned.
